Premier Inn Cardiff (Roath) Hotel
Ranked #23 of 74 Hotels in Cardiff
Reviewed 19 June 2014

Very comfortable and pleasant stay. the staff are superb! Gareth is a STAR and if i worked in south wales i would be trying to poach him! A real asset to Premier Inn.

Only downside, its difficult to get to without a car. i got the train and it £8 each way to the station and once at the hotel there is nothing really to do.

if you have a car, its fab.

Usual consistent high Premier Inn standard. David LLoyd next door a pleasing and unusual place for dinner. Easy to get at and a handy location to reach Cardiff & surroundings. Quiet location. Good night's sleep, which is key objective!

It's located on an industrial estate nowhere near Roath. Restaurant and bar are in an entirely separate sports centre that closes early and is infested with sporty kids. Noisy at night. A depressing experience.

A peaceful location with good healthy food options at the attached restaurant - better than the usual Brewers Fayre etc. whilst the location was not near the swimming pool it was not a far drive and there was a good supermarket nearby. The staff were very helpful and made us welcome.

Myself and 5 others lads stopped at the hotel on the 6th June for 1 night and couldn't fault our stay. The staff on the reception desk were really funny (telling us to keep the noise down) we booked 2 rooms which really lovely and spotless lovely ensuite in both rooms and the normal tea and coffee facilities. Very quiet location for a hotel and it's about 8km to the city centre and a short walking distance to Morrisons. I would definitely recommend this hotel for everybody and age range.

This is a nice Hotel at Cardiff Outskirts. The Cardiff Roath Lake is 20 minutes by walk. The hotel is situated next to Davis Lloyd (a famous club). Rooms are big and neat. The staffs are cordial and helpful. Wifi is free for only 30 minutes a day. The breakfast served through David Lloyd is good. All joints for eating like Burger King, KFC, MacD are within 15 minutes walk. The Hotel is 8 KM away from Cardiff City Centre / Central Bus Station. Lift was very lousy. Management should install a good lift immediately. Hotel Customer can use David Lloyd Clubbing facilities like tennis, swimming pool, etc on payment.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be good and clean.

Myself and 7 other friends stayed here 31st May to the 1st June and I couldn't fault it. As an employee at another Premier Inn myself, I know what to expect and they delivered! The young lady on reception who was in Training on the Saturday afternoon was lovely, very well spoken and seemed genuinely interested in why we were there. I also saw her interact with a deaf couple and she had taken the time to learn some sign language to communicate with them, which I thought was outstanding (couldn't catch a name but young Asian lady, In Training on reception) Definitely needs recognition. The housekeeper we saw in the morning was also lovely! (Sorry couldn't catch a name but wore black shorts and black Vans) and asked us how our stay was. The room was lush, huge TV, absolutely immaculate, and had a great sleep on the new Hypnos mattresses. Will definitely stay again if we're ever back in Cardiff. Thankyou for a great stay!
